There Has Been Blood - Yet There Have Been no Criminal Charges!


Sure… there is a way out
There’s also the occasional truth

Of course, lies can be made to fly a longer distance
And have the sheen of certainty

They do not have the smiling faces
Of children with hope of a future

They do not carry supplies to the offended
And they cannot be made to reflect

The dream of every ferocious wolf
Is a world gone mad with sheep

And, inevitably, it ends with everyone soaked in red
Frothing from the cup of empire

Sure… there’s a way out
When war’s the only thing you know
